These lacy cookies are buttery and crisp. Don’t bake more than 5 cookies on the cookie sheet at one time because even a tiny amount of cookie batter will spread a lot.
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 cup ground pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 of a 4-ounce package sweet baking chocolate or 2 ounces white baking bar

Line cookie sheets with foil. Grease the foil. Set cookie sheets aside.

In a medium mixing bowl stir together the sugar, melted butter or margarine, molasses, and milk. Stir in the ground pecans or walnuts and flour.

Drop level teaspoons of batter 5 inches apart onto a prepared cookie sheet. (Bake only 3 to 5 cookies at a time.) Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5 to 6 minutes, or till bubbly and deep golden brown. Cool cookies on cookie sheet for 1 to 2 minutes, or till set. Quickly remove cookies from pan and cool on a rack. Repeat to bake remaining cookies.

In a small, heavy saucepan melt chocolate or white baking bar over low heat. Drizzle over cookies.
